Aston Barclay announces opening date for new Donington Park Mega Centre
Aston Barclay’s new 18-acre Mega Centre will open at Donington Park on 28 September, the firm has announced.
Forming part of a multi-million pound investment from Rutland Partners into the Group following an MBO earlier this summer, the new site will serve as Aston Barclay’s central hub for all remarketing operations, as well as being the home to a new buyer services and account management team.
The site, located on the Donington Park race circuit complex right next to East Midlands airport and just minutes away from the M1, features two auction lanes, a large imaging bay and a cafe as well as room for storing 400 vehicles undercover.
Centre manager Zaiga Jinkinson added: “Our next job is to plan the installation of the Mega Screens which will show the sale’s running order and marketing as well as the digital pods which allow buyers to search for stock and check on provisional bids in the hall.”
The inaugural sale will see 250 used cars from major fleet and finance vendors go under the hammer and comes as Aston Barclay also invests in existing facilities, HR development and digital technologies.
